Free Ways to Promote Your Site with Social Media, Blogs and Comments - Blogs, Posting and Links
(Page 4 of 4 )
One way to gain credit is with a link. These can be accomplished two ways. The first is by writing a guest post. The second is by getting a blogger.
Writing a guest post will get you a link because users will see the link in your bio blurb. This can be a good strategy, because most blogs love free content.
Getting linked to by a staff blogger will require either a personal connection or sending out press releases for ground-breaking posts.
You can try either of these approaches, or even both. Just be aware that developing a relationship with a blogger you are targeting will take you some time, so do not expect to get any immediate results. For advice on drafting a press release, use a search engine. Guides of every kind will come up, some with ready-to-use templates. Those can be a real time saver in a world where immediacy can be a paramount value.
Now that you know what to do, you can get out there and create your promotional empire. Best of luck to you and your site. For more help, try the FAQ below.

How do I link my RSS feed to a Twitter account?
Several great and automatic plug-ins can be found to do the job, but they vary depending on your blogging platform. Do a check of your platform's plug-in site to find one. If that fails, use a search engine to find a third-party option.
